Lock a Pay Period
Released October 27th 2022 - Web
Admins at companies using 7punches will be able to lock/unlock a pay period, preventing Managers or Assistant Managers from making any edits after payroll has been run. This helps keep labor and payroll data consistent and accurate.
Managers/assistant managers who need to make necessary changes once a timesheet/pay period is locked will need to reach out to their admin for access.
